I just discovered that my roommate is a narcissist. She displays all the characteristic of a narcissisitic and my theropist agreed that my roommate has it. After looking online a little I believe that its because she has a dysfunctional family.
My roommate has been treating me like crap for the last semester and half. I suffer from depression and anxiety which has made it tougher to deal with her psychological rudeness. My question is how do I deal with someone who is a narcissist? I know my roommate thinks nothing is wrong with her and that it's everyone else fault for having issues so there is no use it confronting her. It will only make her more ****** off at me. I just need to know if there is any coping skills I can use to deal with a person who is a narcissist.

the best advice I can give you about dealing with a narcissist is to stay away from them.....LOL
avoid them as much as possible and see about getting a different roommate as soon as you can.
you're right, they will never even see this flaw in themselves, so it does no good to point it out to them.

the narcissists i know are impossible to reason with and will never be able to be reasoned with. the longer you stay, the harder things will get. leave now and leave her on her own to ruin some other poor suckers life. dont make yourself the poor sucker. nothing would make her happier.
Yes narccists are horrible. I was seeing a narccist for a while. She manipulated me and once she got what she wanted from me she turned it all around...and through everything right in my face. The worst thing about it was when she manipulated me, she made me feel so important and special....but once she was done she threw it all in my face. Do not mess with them...they will never understand.
Is it just me or is almost everybody where I live a narcissist because my friends have subtle and sometimes aggressive ways of manipulating me and making me feel worthless and insignificant and being highly competative. I don't have any friends that I can trust because they are all so very competative and seem to be envious and fake. Yes they will at times say such nice and encouraging statements to me that make me feel special but I know that they are saying that because they really just want me to do something for them or see them in a way that is false. I know that I should not play with fire because it can get scary but I am scared of being alone and lonely. So really this is a no win situation for me unless somebody can offer help to me.
